This strain of Zimbabwe Rocks Lithobates is imported from Germany. This fish shows great color. They color up sooner, around 2.5 inches, than the classic Zimbabwe Rocks Strain and often show a wider yellow blaze on the head than the classic version of this fish. Males are blue with a wide yellow blaze on the head and yellow on the dorsal fin. Some males show yellow on the body as well. A few may obtain a more orange color on their blaze and dorsal fin with age.
Base price is for a 1.5" Sex Uncertain. These fish are being grown out from 1.5" size from my wholesaler. A breeder group has been established in-store in order to grow out fry on this popular fish. When they grow out from fry, I will be able to sell them at a sale price.
Best kept in single male tanks with milder Lake Malawi Peacocks and Haplochromines. 55 Gallon or larger tank suggested. It is hard to beat the color of an all-male African Cichlid Tank. Males of this fish are one of the most colorful I have to offer.
The best mix of sex for breeding is one male with five to six females.
